I couldn't resist it--- a new Harbor Freight (yeah, I know the stories about inferior products) opened 2 blocks from my house. Well last weekend they had their Grand Opening sale and I bought a new 1 ton engine hoist/crane for the whopping sum of $79!!! It's the collapsible model and tucks nicely into the corner of the garage and I was looking at getting one to pull the motor on my '71 this fall anyhow. I figure for this price, it beats renting and I have it for any future uses.

Very cool. Now you'll have 'stories' of your own.

I bought the non-collapsable model a few years ago. Probably the best investment I've made as far as tools go. I also got it at harbor freight tools. I have probably used the thing a thousand (or more) times since I bought it...from lifting engines, lifting the lawn mower to get to the blades, lifting the 9N to change tires, all sorts of stuff. Handy little chinese POS crane, although I've never had an issue with it. The ram leaked a little fluid out when I got it out last year to pull a 460/C6 out of my brother's truck....but it's never leaked a drop since.

They do come in handy.

I used my hoist last year to replace a rear axle housing in my Dads Mack.

I bought a non-collapsible one back when I built the engine for the 5.0 and it sure is easier having your own .

I just bought 2 sets of car casters for the '65 so I can push it around the garage . In typical HF fashion the first set was missing a bolt and the second set had a bolt with a head that hadnt been cut (still round) lol.

Have fun with the hoist Duane .
